Belleville Senators TicketsThe Belleville Senators is the top minor league affiliate of the Ottawa Senators, serving as an important incubator and developer of hockey talent. The franchise was founded in 1972 as the New Haven Nighthawks and though it never won a championship it did finish four times as the AHL’s Calder Cup runner up. After adopting the current name of the Senators, the franchise was soon on the move: first to Prince Edward Island in 1993 and then to Binghamton, N.Y. in 2002. Despite the wrenching change, the team had some outstanding seasons. In its best ever finish, Binghamton won the 2011 Calder Cup in a six-game series over the Houston Aeros. Five years later, the Ottawa Senators announced that it was moving its affiliate to Belleville making it the fourth Canadian team in the American Hockey League. The city of Belleville had previously hosted the major junior Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League between 1981 and 2015.

What was Belleville’s record last season?Belleville accumulated 82 points with a record of 37-31-3-5 — a mere two points behind Cleveland for the fourth place spot in the North Division. Because it did not finish in the top four, Belleville narrowly missed the playoffs.
What is Belleville’s schedule for the latest season?Belleville’s regular season begins on Oct. 5, 2019 and concludes on April 11, 2020. The final stretch of the season includes critical North Division games against the Syracuse Crunch on March 14 and 28, the Binghamton Devils on March 25 and April 4, the Toronto Marlies on March 21 and April 8 and the Utica Comets on April 3. The season then ends with away and home games against the Laval Rocket on April 10 and 11, respectively. If Belleville finishes in the top four spots of the North Division, then it will advance to the playoffs, beginning on April 13.
Who is Belleville’s head coach?Troy Mann is the current head coach of the Belleville Senators. In his final season as a player, Mann got his start as an assistant coach with the Topeka Tarantulas in 2004. He then became the head coach of the Columbia Inferno between 2007 and 2008. After the team suspended operations, he had separate stints as an assistant with the Hershey Bears and Charlotte Checkers. Mann then became the head coach of the Bakersfield Condors in 2013 and 2014. However, his most successful run came as the head coach of the Hershey Bears between 2014 and 2018. He led the Bears to two division titles and the 2016 finals with nine members of the Washington Capitals Stanley Cup team.
Does Belleville have any rivalries?Since moving to Belleville, the Senators team has managed to forge a rivalry with the Toronto Marlies. The intensity of the rivalry is not only due to their geographical proximity (they are the only Ontario teams in the AHL) and their competitiveness in the North Division, but also due to the rivalry of their parent organizations, the Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Belleville also has a rivalry with the Laval Rocket, an affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens.
What is the venue like?The CAA Arena, which opened in 1978, has a capacity of approximately 4,400, including a mezzanine area and a fan zone behind the south end. Get the Belleville Senators schedule at StubHub today.
